That’s TV has announced that it will air the long-running sitcom Till Death Us Do Part, which includes four episodes that haven’t been seen in half a century.
The popular comedy show revolves around big-mouthed clown Alf Garnett and his reactionary views.
It follows the constant quarrels between Garnet, played by the late Warren Mitchell, and his wife Elsie, played by Dandy Nichols, son-in-law Mike, played by Tony Booth, and daughter Rita, played by Una Stubbs.
Alf Garnett’s season begins on Sunday, September 4th at 9pm on That’s TV.
The network has aired over 80 episodes of Till Death Us Do Part and its successor In Sickness and in Health, including four “lost” episodes that have not aired since their disappearance from the archives in the late 1960s. It is displayed.
The two shows ran on BBC One for 40 years and produced 13 series between 1966 and 1992.
Mitchell won the BAFTA Award for Best Actor for his role as Garnet in 1967.
The show also made its creator, Johnny Speight, famous and won three Best Comedy Writer Awards from the Writers Guild.
However, the sitcom was considered controversial from the start, being one of the first BBC programs to feature the swear word “bloody” in the 1960s, and was broadcast 1,436 times in its first seven seasons.
Nevertheless, the Duke of Edinburgh reportedly described it as the Queen’s “favorite show”.
Chris Weiksall, Head of Programming for That’s TV, said:
“For 40 years, Alf Garnett’s antics have provided compelling viewing, and That’s TV is thrilled to have secured the rights to air all seasons of the show this fall.
“There are only a few episodes left from the 1960s, but they represent the extraordinary social commentary of the time.
“These episodes hold a special place in the history of television and have broader historical significance, such as Alf Garnett rallying against changing attitudes in the 1960s.”
